Scranton, Lackawanna County- The opening of a popular tourist attraction in Lackawanna County is being delayed by two weeks.
  The Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour was expected to open for the season today -- but did not.
  County officials say more maintenance is needed in the mine.
  They expect it to be open by April 15th.
  Two seasonal workers recently saw their hours reduced -- and the director of the county's parks system says that may have also played a role.
